Mermen are freakin' awesome, this one has been getting a lot of play time.....it might just be me, but I hear overtones (undertones???) of Spanish Jam in track 1.

If not, it's the result of an encounter between Ennio Morricone, a Sonoran Desert toad and 5-MeO-DMT.

This was too good to not add....

Cultivation and uses:

To obtain the psychoactive substances the toxin of psychoactive toads is commonly milked from the toad's poison glands. The milking procedure does not harm the toad — it consists of stroking the animal under its chin to initiate the defensive poison response. Once the liquid toxin has been collected and dried, it can be used for its psychedelic effects. The toad takes about a month to refill its poison glands following the milking procedure, during which time the toad will not produce poison. Some vendors sell dried toad skins, even though it is possible to harvest the poison without harming the toad. The poison is often used for recreational purposes.

Rumors dating from the 1970s claimed that groups of "hippies" or teenagers were licking the psychoactive toads to get high. One version of the story has hippies in the hills of California chasing toads through the woods to get high.

Albert Most, founder of the Church of the Toad of Light and a proponent of recreational use of Bufo alvarius poison, published a booklet titled Bufo alvarius: The Psychedelic Toad of the Sonoran Desert in 1983 which explained how to extract and smoke the secretions.

There have been deaths reported as the result of people attempting to get high from cane toad venom. Reportedly, some dogs in Australia, where the toads have become a major pest, have learned to lick the toads for pleasure.

I've heard that, too, MJ.

Piss poor quality, but could not find the entire clip that includes "ingestion", which for me is crucial.

There is nothing wrong, repeat, nothing wrong, with major boobage.

Aint it great to be 13?
